Awesome! GLWS :)


Really beautiful

Hello, I am your first customer :) I am unable to make it work on custom post types… what is the process ? can you help me do it ?

Hello Hifivintage,

I understand. My first assumption is that the mentions plugin is loaded earlier before the BuddyPress component can filter the avatars, or the filters are not applied on AJAX, idk, but here’s something that might help:

Add this code to your child theme’s functions file (or via a custom plugin):

See line:6, I have called `get_avatar_url` but if things aren’t working there might be a function callback to use instead, or a filter to apply to that function, just let your developer know about this.

Hope it helps and let me know how it goes!



Hello, thanks for the code. However we just tried it, and it does not fix the issue. we still are having mistery avatars in dropdown..


I am sorry about this. I am just confused about what’s causing this conflict, is there anyway I can reproduce your issue? perhaps you wanted to share with me how you implemented BuddyPress and the custom avatars? But first try this (The plugin caches users data so I suspect the cache is not cleared and still serves invalid/deleted users) to make sure the cache is flushed:

1. Add this code to your child theme’s functions file or via custom plugin:

2. Go to any admin page and refresh (you’ll see a notice of ‘Mentions Cache Flushed Successfully!’)

3. Go back to the functions file (or custom plugin) and remove the code added in step 1.

Now see if the issue still consists. If it does, please either help me out reproduce this issue or create a temporary user on your website and send me the credentials through email ( and I’ll look into it on your behalf.

Thank you very much and sorry once again.



Hey Samuel! It’s Joshua! This looks like another great plugin! Keep up the great work!

Hey Joshua! Hope you’re good. Thank you very much for that! Will do. Have a good day :)
